76. Major NEWMAN
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Food whether his attention has been called to the number of pleasure vehicles drawn by two horses to be seen daily in the parks and streets; and whether he will consider the advisability of prohibiting the use of more than one horse for such pleasure vehicles, and so enable extra forage to be given to the horses engaged in hard commercial work?
§ The PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the BOARD of TRADE (Mr. Wardle)
My hon. Friend has asked me to reply to this question. The feeding of oats and other cereals to horses used for pleasure purposes is prohibited under the Horses Rationing Order. The question of restricting the use of horses for pleasure purposes is under consideration.
